The One and Only Port Aransas

The invitation to accompany Atheena and her Nana, Catherine, to Port Aransas, Texas came on this past Friday. I think. it might have been Thursday. Grey area. But anyway, the acceptance was almost immediate. I was dropped off at Atheena's new house on Sunday and we left for Port A the following morning around 7:50. We drove pretty solidly until we reached Austin, where we stopped at the Whole Foods there. We got some Vegan Donuts and some lunch stuff and then we continued on our way.

When we reached the RV park where we would be staying (in Catherine's RV) Atheena and I swam in the pool for a while and then showered. We were pretty tired seeing as we had gotten up at about 6 that morning, so we went to bed early.

On Tuesday, we went to the beach for a few hours. As much fun as the beach is, sunburn is nearly always a negative factor. My face and arms got it this time. But it wasn't too bad. We also went to some gift shops. We first stopped at a cool place called 'GRATITUDE.' It was neat, but we didn't buy anything there. The next place we went was a big yellow place, I'm not sure what it was called. I bought a stuffed dolphin there who I later named Olivander, or Oliver for short. There was another cool place that I also don't know the name of, but they had a cat. It was just walking around the shop and you could pet it and hold it and stuff. The candy store next door contained a less loved pet, a rattle snake. Atheena and Catherine being afraid of snakes, it took some convincing to get them into the shop, and even then they wouldn't go on the same side as the snake. We at last went to a restaurant called Moby Dick's. It was really cool, all piraty and... piraty. We got some french fries and drinks and then we departed. 

Yesterday we went to an amazing aquarium in Corpus Christi. We got there in time for the Turtle Show, which was pretty neat. There were about five sea turtles in all, swimming around in a big pool. Somebody came and told us all about them and all. We then went to the jelly fish, which were amazing. They are really cool. The dolphin show came to follow, which was my favorite part. The aquarium's three dolphins were adorable, and the three trainers played around with them and stuff. It was amazing. I love dolphins. After that, we were all really hungry so we went to a vegan/vegetarian place by the name of Tango's Tearoom. I got a Latin Lover burger containing a veggie burger, avacado, lettuce, and onion and I don't remember what Atheena and Catherine got. The RV park called us back after lunch, and we were glad to relax. Atheena and I played Harry Potter Scene It and then a while later we watched the Half Blood Prince. 

Today is a day of peace, relaxation, and Harry Potter. We've already watched the Order fo the Phoenix and we're watching the Goblet of Fire now. We need a break from doing things. 

I will possibly continue to write the days' events as they happen, but for now I am out of interesting stories.
